I heartily second Bob’s endorsement of this important article by George Monbiot.
You’ve got to read this call to action from George Monbiot.
He starts with what appears to be a technological approach: replace fossil fuels with electric, and all will be well. Those who pay attention to scientific evidence have known from the 1970s that this is false. But then, indeed he points out some of the many problems of continuing to consume the earth using a different power source.
What is killing the environment, and therefore threatening all complex life on Earth, is the current economic model. George agrees with me that this is what needs to change.
He is optimistic that we still have a chance of doing so.
